Local Student Artwork Highlighting the Importance of Water to be Featured in Traveling Art Exhibit


Artwork from students in Western’s service area displayed throughout Southern California

Riverside, CA – Award-winning, local student artwork highlighting the importance of water will be on display at Western Municipal Water District (Western) from June 12 to 19. The art exhibition is part of Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s (MWD) Water is Life Art Contest. 

In addition to being featured in MWD’s well-recognized calendar, artwork from four local Riverside students will be featured in the traveling art exhibit. The 21 water districts, including Western, in MWD’s service area will take turns displaying the artwork on a rotating schedule. The traveling exhibit started in January 2018 and will continue through July. 

“The Water is Life Art Contest allows students the opportunity to create a visual representation of the importance of water. Water truly is life,” said Western’s General Manager Craig Miller. “The traveling exhibit will allow community members to appreciate the beauty of water through the artwork that the students have created. Western is proud to promote water education programs that teach our youth about the value of our water resources.”

This year’s featured artists include four students from Western’s service area.  Students from El Cerrito Middle School in Corona, William Collier Elementary School in Lake Elsinore and Hillcrest High School in Riverside were among hundreds of entries chosen for the 2018 calendar and art exhibit. This year commemorates the 30th year that MWD has hosted the art contest.

The traveling art exhibit is free of charge and can be viewed Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Western’s headquarters, 14205 Meridian Parkway, Riverside. 

Western Municipal Water District provides water supply, wastewater disposal and water resource management to the public in a safe, reliable, environmentally sensitive and financially responsible manner.
